Jermaine Jackson Says Prince Michael Showing Signs of Vitiligo
Singer and author Jermaine Jackson visited The Grove to talk with "Extra" host Mario Lopez about his new book, "You Are Not Alone, Michael: Through a Brother's Eyes" -- and about how Michael Jackson's family is doing.
Jermaine responded to the old rumor that Michael's children -- Prince, 14, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 9 -- are not the late singer's biological offspring. "They are Michael's kids, 100 per cent. I'll tell you why, Prince already has signs of vitiligo, spots on his body," referring to the skin disorder Michael also had. Jermaine added, "They're doing very well."
Jermaine said he wanted to write the book to "document the truth, first and for all," including who he holds responsible for his brother's untimely death in 2009.
"Definitely the doctor," said Jermaine. "All Michael wanted to do was sleep. He didn't want to die. Whatever they did to him -- forgetting, not knowing right from left, repeating himself -- these were signs of toxic poisoning from Propofol."
Was it true Jermaine wanted to take Michael out of the country before his trial for child molestation? "I had a plan. I was going to get my brother out because I did not think he was going to get a fair trial."
